Someone Robbed An Animal Shelter. This Is What The Community Did When They Found Out
March 21, 2016
Last week, a robbery occurred at the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire - a nonprofit that helps thousands of pets each year.
The outside door to The League's Pet Food Pantry was ripped off the hinges, and over 500 lbs of dry dog and cat food were stolen, including 15 lbs of dog treats. The shelf-lined walls that were stocked with pet food, were bare.

The Animal Rescue League of NH receives no state or federal funding, and is dependent upon donations from community members.
As soon as the news broke about the robbery, the donations came pouring in.
This photo was posted on Facebook by the shelter just 14 hours later.
The shelter wrote on Facebook:
"A day that began with sadness and shock, ended up filling our hearts over-the-top! We were confident we would replace the stolen food, but your support - the support from our community - far exceeded our wildest expectations! We are overwhelmed by the generosity of hundreds of people. You knew you could help, and you did! We will be making a plan to ensure that your donations help as many pets and families as possible. Thank you all for rallying with us, and proving that most people are good people."
